‘Badass Danish girl, 1969…wait for it’

Here’s a short 37-second video clip of a young Danish woman who’s being interviewed by a reporter about why she’s traveling alone on foot. Apparently, a woman traveling alone in 1969 was considered unusual for those parts and she needed not only parental permission to do so, but official approval as well. She even procures “a document with a stamp from the local police chief, to verify her story.”

The reporter is worried about her safety and the potential for unwanted harassment, and wonders how she’ll protect herself and… well, the rest is history.

I do not know the provenance of this video. I’m assuming this was perhaps part of a local news segment. A very memorable local news segment…
